The Journal of Student Science and Technology (formerly the Canadian Young Scientist Journal (fr. Journal étudiant de la science et de la technologie ) is a non-profit peer-reviewed publication covering student-driven research. It was established in May 2008 by Alexandre Noukhovitch[1] and is published by the Foundation for Student Science and Technology. It provides secondary school students with an opportunity to publish the results of their research.[2] It works in close association with Youth Science Canada.[3] The journal includes project reports, case studies, and science book reviews authored by high school students.[4] To benefit science education and to support classroom activities, the journal publishes expert reviews along with students' papers.

The award-winning Journal of Student Science and Technology is a scholarly publication offering PhD review and citation of high school, university and college student ideas and research.

The Journal helps prepare emerging scientists, researchers, managers and leaders for future careers in science and technology. Reflecting the standards and practices of some of the world’s foremost science publishing, the Journal offers students real world grounding in the requirements of formal scientific publishing.

The Journal encompasses project reports, case studies, book reviews and other work relating to the physical and life sciences, engineering, mathematics and informatics, biology and environmental studies, social sciences and humanities, and more. The Journal is published by a dedicated team of PhD reviewers and experts representing some of the most distinguished public and private science organizations, universities, companies, research institutes and others.

The Journal is one of several programs offered by the Foundation for Student Science and Technology (FSST), a not-for-profit organization dedicated to developing the career potential of gifted students for leadership roles in the science community. [5]


One copy of the journal is distributed to every Canadian high school for free. Paying members gain access to online archives and other benefits. In 2009-2010, The journal received a $28,000 grant from the Canadian Space Agency to "promote space science and engineering careers".[6] The journal is available on-line through EBSCO Press, Educational Collection.[7]
